Papilio Beauty salon offer a wide range range of waxing and hair removal treatments for the full body, including lip, eyebrows, chin, underarm, forearm, bikini, full leg, half leg, back, chest, foot and toes.

Waxing removes hair from the root, so it takes longer time for the hair to grow back again. Waxing may last between 3-8 weeks, depending on the individual speed of the hair growth, or the relevant part of the body getting waxed. This means your hair-free, smooth skin lasts much longer.

You can go for that holiday on the beech knowing you will have smooth and glowing skin, without worrying about hair growth.

In contrast to other methods of hair removal (hair removing creams and shaving), waxing does not cause cuts, pigmentation, or badly smelling skin. No harsh chemicals are present in wax, so the skin is protected from their damaging effects.

Hair that grows after waxing is of a finer and softer variety, not rough and hard as after shaving. The benefit of waxing is that it does not cause ugly stubble as you would after shaving.

After repeated sessions of waxing, you will notice a much sparser hair growth and hair growth may even stop eventually. In contrast, shaving stimulates hair growth because it removes hair at the surface only, not at the root.

Waxing leaves the skin soft, smooth and rejuvenated because it also removes a layer of dead skin cells from the surface of the skin.

We provide a warm wax and a lavender cream wax for sensitive skin.

Advice and Aftercare

  • Do not expose yourself to direct sunlight in the 24 hours before waxing and especially in the 48 hours after
  • Avoid wearing tight clothing
  • Avoid hot baths/showers/sunbeds/sauna/steam room/any heat for 24 hours
  • Avoid using lotions/fragrant/deodorant for 24 hours

Please note: Some people may get redness, bumps or skin irritation after waxing. This is perfectly normal and will subside within a few hours.
